Chart Hits and Sales Info

I was wondering if anyone knew any good sites that have fairly accurate and up to date japanese music chart hits. There's a lot out there, but the rating of artists seems to vary quite a bit....seems like its based more on opinion. Which ones go according to sales and are trustworthy? Also, are there any sites out there that show how much singles and albums are making?

How about older rankings, like say 10 or 20 years ago, is there a site that keeps track of the overall trend in the Japanese music market?

Thanks for the link. One more question. On the ranking, it shows like the name of a single, the artists name, date, and then it has a number next to that. Does that number show how many cds have been sold? Or is that how much money that has been made? Here's a link for a example.

Yeah, that's the number of copies sold. However...those are predictive, and not exact sales numbers.
